Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

sevenstories’ #CBR4 Review #48: Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell

After a six week delay, and a 23 or so book backlog, hello again.

My 48th review is of a lovely, funny short book about weird things people say to booksellers and my review develops into a spiel about why we should use real, local bookshops, or libraries, not vast online, faceless corporations.

“Customer: I read a book in the sixties. I don’t remember the author, or the title. But it was green, and it made me laugh. Do you know which one I mean?”

One thought on “sevenstories’ #CBR4 Review #48: Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell

  1. I met Mr Smith when we were both underemployed at a major independent bookstore in Atlanta. This was 20+ years ago, before blogs, so the employees kept a notebook full of all the stupid things customers would say. I’m sure this book is full of the same types of silly and odd questions. Maybe I’ll buy this, at a bookstore of course, for our 19th anniversary in October.
